Ductile iron pipe is made up of ductile cast iron and is commonly used for potable water distribution and transmission. The pipe is rich in graphite cast iron which the graphite has a spheroidal-shaped molecular structure. Thus the molecular structure makes cast iron a little less brittle and more resistant to impact than the other varieties that have a flaky structure. Ductile iron pipe is also used in trenchless technology for water and sewer lines. The life expectancy of unprotected ductile iron pipes depends on the corrosiveness of the soil present and it tends to be shorter where the soil is highly corrosive. However, the pipes can have a life of more than 100 years if they are coated within and without with non-corrosive linings such as paint, cement, and polyethylene encasement among others.
